Early San Francisco mornings when the fog stands still in the midst of the busy commute hour can give the city life a whole other feeling. Walk the streets from the edge of Alamo Square Park to the vibrant and hip Divisadero Street to get a true sense of the city's diversity. Notice the architecture of the homes, the blooms of flowers and intricate succulents plants that line the tall and narrow historic homes of this neighborhood.
Walk to Divisadero & Grove to visit The Mill. A bright coffee shop brewing four barrel coffee in a small space you could spend hours in. The neutral colors provide a distraction free workplace and their decadent toast is sure to compliment a pippin' hot almond milk latte. The breads offered at The Mill baked fresh by Josey Baker Bread will surely make your morning a delight as you walk through the airy space and outside to the small sidewalk parklet. Do some shopping while your there for some local honeys, ceramics and more treasures.
After a stop here, head to Alamo Square Park for unobstructed view of San Francisco's skyline. Embrace the morning chill, as the sun begins to slowly peak through the thick layer of fog that has blanketed the city from the previous evening. Feel the muscles working throughout your whole body as you climb the hills and marvel in the beauty that surrounds you. Enjoy the silence that the early mornings of this neighborhood provides. Get lost in Alamo Square.
